Injuries and offseason losses on the offensive line are rearing their head early in the season for the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys only averaged 4.07 yards per play in Week 1, which ranks 25th in the NFL. Dak Prescott did not look good in the Cowboys loss to the Panthers. Prescott average only 5.9 yards per attempt (a number he could frequent over the season as the Cowboys are devoid of pass-catching talent).
New York Giants
While the New York Giants lost in Week 1, there are positives to take from their game. Odell Beckham Jr. looks happy and healthy, topping 100 yards receiving while rookie running back Saquon Barkley added 128 yards from scrimmage and scored his first NFL touchdown. If those two can continue to repeat this type of production throughout the season, the Giants will improve from their 3-13 record a season ago.
The Cowboys lead this rivalry 64-46-2, but since the 1990s, the two teams are much more even in record. Since 1990, Dallas is up 29-28 over the Giants. In addition, no two teams have played more Sunday night football games than the Giants and Cowboys. The Cowboys are up 7-4 in the series, including a 19-3 win at home last season.
